13 Patent Applications & Patents By CAS and top Chinese Universities Source: CAS Patent Analysis System, searched on Nov. 19, 2011 CAS Patent Statistics Report 2012 National Ranking---by patents

14 CAS, with 2,661 articles published in 68 high-quality journals, continues to top the China index list according to Nature Index China 2014, and is third in the world list (after CNRS and MPS)Nature Index China 2014 By 2013 weighted fractional count (WFC), CAS tops the world list (WFC gives a measure of the relative contribution to each paper) International Ranking---by publication in top journals

15 Basic strategies: Partner with major S&T institutions across the globe Participate in major international mega-science programs Establish joint labs/institutes when necessary Collaborate with scientists from developing countries, with a focus on talent training and S&T capacity building Set up overseas research units in needed regions and fields International Cooperation Effective means of maximizing our potential, making contributions to advancing global science and addressing global challenges Key to internationalizing our research and education

16 CAS Central Asia Center for Medicine Overseas Research Units CAS Central Asia Center for Ecology and Environment CAS South America Center for Astronomy CAS South America Joint Lab for Space Weather Sino-Africa Joint Research Center

17 Global network/connections: Hundreds of Global network/connections: Hundreds of partners in over 90 countries Academies & Research Institutions Universities MNCs International Organizations International Cooperation

18 Blueprint for : The Pioneer Initiative To consolidate CAS’ leading position in scientific excellence, high-caliber talent cultivation and think- tank service To establish CAS as a world-class research institution

19 Action 1: Restructure CAS Institutes Blueprint for : The Pioneer Initiative

20 Action 2: Optimize scientific deployment according to five priorities  Strategic and major scientific issues and challenges space science, earth and ocean exploration, big data, cloud computing, smart technology, cyber-security, quantum communication tech, mobile internet, etc.  Fundamental science, frontiers and inter-disciplinary research quantum science, brain science, superconducting materials, etc.  Core technology for emerging industries new energy, new materials, advanced manufacturing, etc.  National security  Health and sustainable development. Blueprint for : The Pioneer Initiative

22 Action 4: Further enhance the role as a national think-tank Institute for S&T Strategy and Consultation S&T Policy and Consultation Innovation - driven development Ecological Civilization Frontiers of Science Strategic Intelligence Blueprint for : The Pioneer Initiative

23 Action 5: Implement an open innovation strategy Develop a national science & technology service(STS) network Establish regional innovation systems Implement inter- nationalization strategy Develop national science platforms open to the public and the whole scientific community Enhance domestic & international cooperation to further provide S&T service Blueprint for : The Pioneer Initiative

24 CAS is the largest S&T organization in China with multiple roles and unique importance. The uniqueness of CAS in integrating R&D, education and strategic advice has proved to be an advantage to the organization in delivering high quality S&T, high-caliber talent and trusted ideas. Conclusion Despite challenges, we expect to continue to do well due to our legacy, culture and efforts. International cooperation, a recipe for our success, will play an increasingly important role in our future.

25 CAS looks forward to working with you !
